NYPD officers detain protesters taking part in a march in support of the protests against the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in Manhattan, New York August 20, 2014. REUTERS/Eduardo MunozNew York – Police Commissioner William Bratton along with Deputy Commissioner Joseph Reznick met with 700 New York City police officers to give them an eye-opening reminder that the NYPD will not tolerate, “brutality, corruption, racism or incompetence.”

Reznick showed a video of multiple clips showing police brutality of various kinds – stomping on heads, beatings and other violence – toward suspects in police custody, reports the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1vds8xa).

Bratton said he and other agencies overseeing the department are working to extract bad cops.

The video captured a 2008 incident where a bicyclist was body-checked by a uniformed officer in Times Square, a suspect having his head stomped by a police officer while other officers were handcuffing him and one clip from Target store surveillance shows a police officer punching a shoplifting suspect.


All of the incidents have been or are presently under investigation.
